Most Filipino travelers would go to nearby countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau (Visa free country) but very few would go to Indonesia. Most Filipinos would only know Bali and Jakarta but little did we know that Indonesia has so much to offer for all types of travelers.
In July 2016, I got invited by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia together with 50+ other South East Asian bloggers and influencers to travel around Indonesia for 12 days. I extended my trip to Jakarta for 3 days and was not able to do so much because of the traffic jam. Few from our batch went to Yogyakarta and seeing their amazing photos made me want and eager to go back to Indonesia and visit Yogyakarta.
Luckily Last January 2018, I was able to go back in Indonesia, had a 4-day trip to Jakarta with AirAsia and finally extended my trip for another 4 days just to see the wonders of Yogyakarta. I always wanted to visit temples and palaces in this region and finally, I did. Let me share you where we s…

Affordable Stay Around Rockwell Makati: Palm Rock Residences

Palm Rock Residences is situated in the residential neighborhood of Poblacion Makati City. Right in front of this hotel is St. Paul Makati so if you went outside the hotel you will hear those girls screaming (maybe when the teacher is out of the classroom, lol). The place is really quiet but you might have a hard time finding a place to eat in a decent restaurant. You have to walk to the other street like near A. Venue Mall or Rockwell Powerplant Mall which is about 10-12 minute walk from Palm Rock Residences. There are some Korean and Japanese Restaurant on the other street near Makati Junction Hotel. But if you are looking for a cheap food there's one house selling home cooked meals for a very affordable price. 

Deluxe Published room rates is 5,000 PHP / 102 USD but if you will book a room via hotel apps or website you will get a much cheaper deal like more than 50% off. 

All rooms have a/c, LED TV, ensuite bathroom with hot and cold shower and a complimentary plated breakfast for two people. A cabinet for keeping your things and clothes especially if you decided to stay here longer than 3 nights. The hotel offers monthly rates for 45,000 PHP / 918 USD exclusive of electricity and water. However, you can call the hotel and ask for a discount at +632-8820123.

  1. If you need a decent hotel, then this is it. However, whenever I travel, I am always on a tight budget so I don't think I'll be able to afford this.

  2. The hotel looks neat. Thanks for that bit of information of the availability of affordable home cooked meals in the neighbourhood! These tiny details is what exactly what makes bloggers different from others!!! It also provides monthly rates? That's cool, esp for those who come there for work on a couple months!

  3. The room looks very nice! The location is in a very busy place that we can go on a staycation in. There are plenty of interesting restaurants and of course Powerplant.

  4. The room looks so neat and comfortable. Looks like a n ice place to stay! great review!

  5. I used to live in Poblacion area and I love that neighborhood. Palm rock looks like a really posh unit to stay in.

  6. Just wondering if it's safe to publish your permit like this? I heard about flight tickets being unsafe to be published on social media, not sure if this applies to permits as well~

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas. Batangas is a 2-hour drive from Manila and Bauan Batangas has white beach sand.
